Tasting Note by The Chaps at Master of Malt

Nose: Touch of menthol. Sherry again, less pronounced, but the complexity is greater.

Palate: Very simple, incredibly clean central palate, but amazingly tangy. Really zingy top notes.

Finish: Very, very long and complex finish, Oak-rich, cocoa, buttery...

Overall: Very good, very complex, nicely tangy.

User Reviews of the Glenfarclas 25 Year Old

Pretty Good

Having gotton use to the Family Cast, I find this one lacking. I would prefer more complexity. However it is a good Glenfarcus and it is a wonderful drink. Given that it cost less than a comparable Family Cast, I would say this is a good value. I gave 3 ½ stars because for the money it's a great buy and wonderful to drink. I'm just spoiled by the a Family Cast.

This is one of my favorites. Smooth and has a nice balance of dried fruit, bittersweet chocolate, and oakieness with a hint of cinnamon. The light spiciness and sherry hints make this a really nice dram of whisky.

Full bodied

A great whisky, at a great price.
I take issue with the reviews below stating this is not up to standard. It's simply not the case and clearly don't know what there talking about, referencing a £235 bottle as a better alternative??
As with macallan and glengoyne, this has also spent its full maturation in sherry casks. The higher the age, the longer the flavours are absorbed into the spirit. Giving a deep, full bodied taste, full of dried fruit.
This bottle easily matches the glengoyne 21. I'm not saying its better. But you can search reviews online to see how highly regarded this dram is and at this price you will struggle to find better.
Macallan 25 is £695 to put it in perspective and the dalmore 25 is £625, to name just a few.

Great drink, we actually liked this better than Glenfarclas 105

We feel for our taste buds that this is parallel to the MacAllen 18 in all aspects from flavors, to smells, to smoothness
Would most certainly buy this and give as a gift

I bought the 25 y/o Glenfarclas for the outcome of tax season (good season, cheers! Bad season, get drunk). It turned out to be a good tax year and I brought out the bottle in celebration with my mates and all of our faces were inexpressive. There was no distinctive bang, too much bite, the aroma has a fairly nice waft, but breathing it too close burns the nose. We only had one drink and called it a night.Now I'm drinking the bottle alone in order to make room for a standard Jack or Jameson 1/25 or 1/2 this bottle's age and 1/5 the price. This drink does not make me look forward to its consumption. I waited a year to drink it and should have waited longer. If I go fancy, I'm sticking to Glenfiddich 21 or higher. That number 25 on the label has curb appeal, but no value on the quality.

Very good, mature whisky

Having tried several of the Glenfarclas lineup (not including family casks), I think I can say that this one fits right in and acts its age. It is unmistakably Glenfarclas. The nose is typical of the distillery, though sweeter and perhaps softer. It is dangerously drinkable. I could see where some might complain of it being too subtle... but I don't think that is the case. It shouldn't be compared to the likes of Aberlour and Glendronach.

That sherry nose

The palate is not my personal favorite, but the nose is just mindblowing, so much complex sherry. Watch out though, the nose could be addicting if you like sherry.

My father is 80 in a week's time and loves Glenfarclas 15 year old, so I thought I'd splash out on something a bit special. So I come here to check out the reviews on the Glenfarclas 25, but find two that appear to be advertising Glengoyne, both citing the Glengoyne 21 and 25. However the Glengoyne 25 is £234, so why on earth cite it when reviewing a whisky that costs £116? And `Steve' if there really are whiskies in Sainsburys costing just £20, but the equal of this one, please do tell me which ones they are as I can save a lot of money. Maybe the Glenfarclas was just too subtle for your tastebuds?

Too Light, Too Expensive

I have to agree with the review below. This whisky is in no way complex or rich in flavour when you compare it to the Glengoyne 21 and the Glengoyne 25. The Glengoyne 21 is thick, rich and full of flavour, the Glenfarclas 25 and the 21 are both terribly overpriced and with little flavour.

I bought this on the strength of the reviews here but am very disappointed. I enjoy the Glengoyne 21 and 25 and several Glendronach sherried malts, the rich fruity taste and long spice finishes. The Glenfarclas 25 is none of those, it's a very subtle whisky, there is no strong taste, very little taste at all in fact and even the nose is plain and dry. This tastes like a cheap 10 year old whisky, not unpleasant and certainly drinkable but a Macallan 10, many of the The Balvenies and even Arberlour 12 all have a deeper, richer flavour with more complexity and a stronger finish than this and all cost half the price of this.

I can't see the appeal, if you want a light, easy drink then spend £20 in Sainsbury's, not over £107 on this. Waste of money when you consider that a Glengoyne 21 is the same price, chalk and cheese !

A solid member of the Glenfarclas range

This one is a very good, refined whisky, one that develops curious raw cocoa & sacher notes that I couldn't find in any other glass in a lineup of their current 15-40 year olds. It's nuttier than the rest of the bunch and the one that stands out as a bit of a surprise when you nose the different age bottlings in succession. Good stuff.

Just about perfect

I have now sampled all the glenfarclas standard range. Have to say like them all, this is perhaps the best one it's complex but accessible. The 40 is great very complex but not sure it's what I want in a speysider 30 I did not really see much difference to this not sure worth the extra outlay 21 again a bit to similar to the 15 and 17.

Think this and the 12 the prefect couple for any collection as best all round examples of this distillery. But that said would not exclude any of the others...

Smooth and balanced, the sherried notes are strong but not over powering. The nose has tones of fruit, and the taste is like buttery toast. As stated by the guys at MOM, it's the finish where this malt excels, as it's long and full. Excellent!

9th December 2013

One of the best

Opened this on my daughters first birthday. One of the best whiskeys I have ever drunk. This is a sherried finish heavyweight!

15th September 2013

Quelle découverte, un must have

Simplement merveilleux

10th November 2012

One of the best sherried finishes you can find

Really nice and fresh, but complex enough. Nice dried fruit, cinnamon and cocoa notes along with sherry and bit of oak. Some almonds notes in aftertaste. This is one of my all time favorites.If you want serious sherry monster look no further Glenfarclas and Glendronach. Sorry, not Macallan. Povilas

No menthol, just ripe apples and fruits, great taste. Lovely oaky sweetness which you can chew for ages

14th December 2011
